Union County Clerk Extends Hours for General Election Vote-By-Mail

Union County, NJ – Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi announces that the County Clerk’s Elections Offices in Elizabeth and Westfield will be open for extended hours on Saturday, November 2 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., for anyone seeking to obtain a Vote-By-Mail ballot for the General Election.

Voters have until Monday, November 4 at 3:00 p.m. to obtain a Vote-by-Ballot in person at the County Clerk’s offices.

“Voters who apply for a Vote-by-Mail ballot in person at the Elections Offices in Elizabeth or Westfield can fill out their ballot and cast it in a secure lock box at the site, all in one visit,” said Ms. Rajoppi. “My office provides this ‘One-Stop’ service to help ensure that the Vote-by-Mail process is user friendly and convenient.”

To cast a Vote-by-Mail ballot in person at the Elizabeth and Westfield offices, a 2015 state law requires voters to provide a New Jersey driver’s license or New Jersey identification card with their photo, name, address and signature.

Voters who choose not to leave their ballot in the secure lock box may deliver it in person to the Union County Board of Elections by Election Day, or mail it in time to be postmarked by Election Day.

Applications for Vote-by-Mail are also available by download through the County Clerk’s elections website and Union County Votes app. Voters can also request an application by mail by calling the Elections Office at 908-527-4996 or email

The Election Office is located at the County Clerk’s Main Office in the Union County Courthouse at 2 Broad Street in midtown Elizabeth. To access the Election Office during special Saturday Vote-by-Mail hours, voters must use the rear entrance of the Courthouse on Elizabethtown Plaza. The Election Office is located in Room 113.
